Maple (Year 2)

Hello, cześć, bună ziua, merhaba and salam! A very magical welcome to Maple class, where we have an exciting year ahead of us! My name is Miss Relf and I will be teaching Maple, with the help of my lovely teaching assistant Mrs Slade. 
We have lots of wonderful learning experiences planned this year, with a Harry Potter themed classroom, and fascinating topics like Roald Dahl, Light and Dark, Dinosaurs, Africa, Castles and the Seaside to learn about. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children in my class and embarking on a fun learning journey with them throughout the year! 
If you would like to discuss anything with me then I will be available both before and after school. 
Please ensure that named P.E kits are kept in school every day.


In Maple class this week we have had great fun learning all about dinosaurs! We have put our dinosaur knowledge to great use by writing some wonderful spine poems all about dinosaurs’ teeth, eyes, tails and horns using fabulous adjectives and similes. Maple have also really enjoyed learning about money and working out how much change to give from 10p and 20p!



Maple has had a very exciting week filled with lots of fun learning! We have loved reading Esio Trot by Roald Dahl, and a visit from Mrs Clark’s pet tortoise George really brought the story to life! We enjoyed finding out about George’s diet and how tortoises hibernate. In Maths meanwhile, we have been learning about Shape, and have enjoyed using Venn diagrams to sort shapes by their properties. The class have also put their art skills to good use by doing some junk modelling and using papier mâché to create their own ‘grubbers’. Maple loved ripping newspapers and using a flour and water mixture to cover their grubbers!
